Don't Be Sad - Aaidh ibn Abdullah al-Qarni

This book will lift your spirits! It will give you the strength to tackle the problems that come your way with a fresh new perspective. It is also an uplifting book.

It was originally written in Arabic but has been translated into English by Faisal ibn Muhammad Shafeeq. It has also been translated into Malay. Although the book is written with reference mainly to the Holy Quran, it also includes quotations from other non-muslim philosophers which the author feels contribute to the general objective of his book.

Even if you are not a Muslim, you will find this book useful. Humans are universally similar so the issues that he brought up in the book applies to all people regardless of religion or race. The tone of the book wakes you up to the realities of life – that there are things that are beyond our control. One example I quote, “Episodes of the past are finished with;sadness cannot retrieve them, melancholy cannot make things right and depression will never bring the past back to life.”
